Create Cluster Wizard Error: An enabled computer object for ‘TD-Cluster-01"’ was found.

We are on our second run through creating a cluster on our own network here.

After selecting the correct subnet for the management network and setting an IP for the cluster administration point we received the following error:


Create Cluster Wizard

An enabled computer object for ‘TD-Cluster-01’ was found. This usually means that the name is in use by another computer or cluster network name. If this is not the case then please disable or delete the Active Directory Computer Object.

After opening ADUC on our SBS v7 box we saw the following in our SBSServers OU:


We deleted the Computer account out of the SBSComputers OU and also removed the TD-Cluster-01 DNS A record under our domain’s forward lookup zone.

We then clicked Next in the Create Cluster Wizard after they were deleted.

The wizard went on to create the cluster successfully.
